An Impractical Doctrine?
We tend to associate the Trinity with philosophers, and not see it as something that affects our lives. If you asked someone to write down the impacts the Trinity had on their life the first word spouted would probably be “Er…”
The Most Important Doctrine
Mike argued the Trinity is the most important doctrine of all, following the Athanasian Creed:
Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic [universal Christian belief, not Roman Catholic] faith;
Which faith except every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.
And the catholic faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity;
The creed has the trinity as the foremost doctrine of the Church. How can this be?
The Trinity tells us who our God is. This affects everything we believe in.
Therefore, it is lamentable that Christians present the Trinity as a dry, abstract doctrine. How can abstraction be a good description of the living God.
If you’re a Christian, consider what place the Trinity has in your life. Is it dry dogma or living truth?
If you aren’t a Christian join us for the rest of this series and see who the God we worship really is.
